Hayes Outdoor is an exciting outdoor arts space in the heart of Hayes. Launched in June 2018, it’s a place where anyone and everyone can come to see some of the best outdoor performers in the world, for free. Featuring anything from circus to dance to music, the shows aim to delight and inspire people whether they’re 4 or 84.
Shows include incredible feats performed on shopping trolleys by C-12 Dance Theatre, acrobatic dance on a giant Jenga-like structure from Motionhouse & No Fit State, and circus in a paddling pool from Cie Barolosolo.
Situated next to Hayes & Harlington Station in High Point Village, it’s a large square, with seating and standing space, where all are welcome. Summer at Hayes Outdoor starts on Wednesday 20 June and continues on fortnightly Wednesday afternoons and early evenings right through until the end of August. It’s the perfect way to enjoy your midweek, whether you’re on your way home from work or at home with the family.
Hayes Outdoor is programmed and produced by Watermans, West London’s leading arts centre. It follows in the footsteps of Bell Square, Watermans’ first outdoor arts venue in the heart of Hounslow and continues with the ethos of bringing top-quality artistic work to local people in a completely inclusive and accessible way.
